Wouldn't it make more sense to give the battles in chronological order, as is done in the vast majority of war-related templates? john k (talk) 02:50, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

George Plantagenet, 1st Duke of Clarence[edit]

It seems odd to list him as a prominent Lancastrian, but not Yorkist, given he mostly fought for the Yorkist side and was a Yorkist by blood; the Earl of Warwick who switched sides is listed under both so might Clarence not be as well? Dunarc (talk) 22:48, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

Also John Neville, 1st Marquess of Montagu and Thomas Neville aka Bastard of Fauconberg are only down as Yorkists, but both also fought for the Lancastrians (indeed Montagu died fighting the Yorkists). Given the habit of changing sides perhaps a fought for both groups could be added or the split between Yorkists and Lancastrains removed? Dunarc (talk) 18:33, 15 May 2016 (UTC)

Second Cornish uprising of 1497[edit]

I have added Second Cornish uprising of 1497 to see also beside Perkin Warbeck; the uprising was Warbeck's last serious attempt to challenge the Tudor succession, and as he did under the pretense of being the legitimate Yorkist heir to the throne, can be seen as be a direct consequence of the Wars of the Roses.

White rose upside down[edit]

Isn't the white rose depicted in the image upside down? -- Dr Greg  talk  12:51, 9 October 2018 (UTC)
